American reality TV star, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in a luxury residence Paris by two men posing as police officers.
A spokeswoman for the reality TV star said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” after they tied her up in the flat’s bathroom before fleeing the scene.
A Paris police official told the Associated Press that five armed men, who were still at large, stole a jewellery box containing valuables worth €6m (£5.2m) as well as a ring worth €4m, and mobile telephones. Police said the robbers escaped on bicycles.
The Guardian reports, that the robbers handcuffed the concierge before ordering him to show them where Kardashian West was staying. After forcing their way into the apartment they tied her up and locked her in the bathroom.
“The haul amounts to several million euros, most of which is jewellery. We’re still trying to establish the exact amount stolen,” a police source told Agence France-Presse. He added that Kardashian West had flown out of France on Monday morning after giving a statement to police.
Kardashian’s husband, the rapper Kanye West, had to leave the stage at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York when he heard the news.
He told fans: “I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show.”
